Happy Word With Shadow SugarCut

And here’s what I came up with for you today! A super sweet and easy scene made with the cutest images from Happy Little Trees stamp set. To start, I die cut all the shapes from Happy Little Trees SugarCut on Strathmore Bristol paper, stamped the open images from Happy Little Trees stamp set with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and colored all the elements with water based markers!

Here’s the complete list of all the markers used on this project: TOMBOW N65, 025, 055, 090, 126, 133, 195, 452, 535, 725, 933, 942, 946, 969, 977, 990 plus ZIG Clean Colour Real Brush marker n.71 Flesh Colour.

An extended A2 size card front (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) made from Neenah Solar White  paper was masked with a piece of Post-It tape. I inked the sky and ground portions through new just released yesterday Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil with Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks and my blending brushes. Next I very carefully cut in two the sentiment from Happy Little Trees stamp set using a pair of the sharp small scissors so that I can switch the stamped word “happy” to a bigger die cut one from new Happy Word With Shadow SugarCut. I stamped the sentiment using the same VersaFine Onyx Black ink used before for a perfect match and colored the die cut word “happy” with markers before adhering it to the card front. Finally I popped all the colored stamps with a bit of dimension and skipped any other embellishment.

Newton’s Nook Designs’ May Release and Giveaway – Day 2 – Monarchs Stamp and Butterflies Stencil Sets



Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Newton’s Nook May release! I’m so excited you’ve joined me today and can’t wait to share my cards with you!

All the new May products will be available for purchase on Friday, May 22th at Newton’s Nook Designs online store and other craft retailers!

Fluttering By... #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Monarchs stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

The second day of the release has reserved us small, but not less amazing Monarchs stamp set that comes with the coordinating Monarchs Die Set and a wonderful Butterflies Stencil Set that is so fun to mix with butterflies stamps or use on its own.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Monarchs stamp sets to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My firs card is very simple and easy. I stamped on Neenah Solar White paper, die cut and colored with copic markers all three big butterflies from Monarchs stamp set, using Y00-Y15-YR12-YR07-E08 color combo.

Next I created a green background using Tropical Leaves stencil and Distress inks. To start, I smooched Twisted Citron Oxide and Moved Lawn Distress inks on a clear acetate, spritz it with water and transferred the colors on a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock since it meant to work with water. I repeated the same process a few times and heat set the colors with my heat tool. Next I mixed a plain white embossing paste with the same shades of Distress inks and added a leaf pattern through the stencil. I let everything air dry well before popping my background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) along with colored butterflies and the matching sentiment.

The second card featured beautiful Butterflies Stencil Set that comes with two layers and allows easily mix and match different colors and mediums. Once again, I started with Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock and Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral Distress inks. I taped well the layer #1 from Butterflies Stencil Set and inked with my blending brushes creating an ombré effect. Then I switched to the layer #2 and added more intense colors recreating the intricate pattern on the butterflies. I lift up the stencil and inked the whole background following an ombré effect. I finished with a few tiny shimmer droplets and let the pattern air dry.

Meanwhile I heat embossed the butterflies from Monarchs stamp set on vellum with a fine white embossing powder and die cut them using the coordinating Monarchs Die Set. I also prepared the matching heat embossed sentiment on a strip of a red cardstock.

I popped the colorful background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) with a foam tape for a bit of dimensional look along with the heat embossed sentiment. Next I adhered the vellum butterflies with a tiny glue dots and finished with some clear and white iridescent sequins.

SugarPea Designs Spring 2020 Release: Day 2

I Love Spending Time With You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottontail Cuties stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the SugarPea Spring Product Release!

I hope you’ll join SPD Design Team over the next 4 days because we’ll be sharing Sweet Peeks for the products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, May 24th at 2 PM EST in the SPD Store.

Each day will be full of inspiration, and as always, you’ll have a shot at winning one of FIVE GIVEAWAYS!  All you need to do is leave a comment for your chance to win.

**Please note that links to our store for these new products will not go LIVE until 2PM EST on May 24th.**

Today’s Introductions include… the most adorable Cottontail Cuties stamp set and the coordinating Cottontail Cuties SugarCut that is so helpful to get all the tiny images cut out in no time plus wonderful Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil.

Love, love love so much the new Cottontail Cuties stamp set because it filled with the most adorable little critters and accessories that are so helpful for building sweet scenes on the cards!!! To start, I die cut on a piece of Neenah Solar White paper all the shapes from Cottontail Cuties SugarCut and save the negative parts for all the future stamping. As usual I used my MISTI tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping, helping myself with the negative parts of the dies for a perfect alignment. Next I simply colored all the stamps with copic markers.

In case you’re wondering, here’s the complete list of all COPIC markers used on this project: YG0000-YG00-YG01-YG23-YG41-G05-G09; YR000-YR00-YR02-YR04-YR07; Y0000-Y00-Y11; W00-W1-W2-W4; V01-V04; R00-R20-R22-R24; RV00-RV02; E0000-E000-E30-E31-E33-E35.

I Love Spending Time With You #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Cottontail Cuties stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

When I work with cuties, I prefer to keep everything clean and simple. For the card front I inked a very light grass and sky portions through new Outdoor Scene Builder Stencil with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. I used the blending brushes this time instead of a regular sponge foams since they make the blending very easy and help to keep the colors light. Finally I started assembling all the elements together with a bit of dimension. I added a heat embossed sentiment that comes from the same Cottontail Cuties and a few clear sparkling sequins as a finish touch.

SugarPea Designs Spring 2020 Release: Day 1

Piece of Cake 3D Boxes #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - Piece of Cake SugarCut by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the SugarPea Spring Product Release!

I hope you’ll join SPD Design Team over the next 5 days because we’ll be sharing Sweet Peeks for the products that will be available for purchase starting this Friday, May 22th at 6 PM EST in the SPD Store.

Each day will be full of inspiration, and as always, you’ll have a shot at winning one of FIVE GIVEAWAYS!  All you need to do is leave a comment for your chance to win.

**Please note that links to our store for these new products will not go LIVE until 6PM EST on May 22th.**

Today’s Introductions include… the fantastic Piece of Cake – 3D Box. These boxes can be assembled to open in two different ways (top or back) and ten pieces create the whole cake.

There’s no much to say about the assembling. The base must be die cut two times and the back flap must be cut out from one base for the correct assembling. In case you’re interested, SugarPea Designs prepared a video tutorial on their YouTube channel.

You have two options for the lid as showcased in the product image that I posted above and a wide variety of additional accessories to suit any occasion and style.

Due to the COVID-19 emergency, I was not able to order new patterned paper for this project and so I dug deep into my scrapbook stash and found this sweet themed patterned paper from Dovecrafts. I don’t believe they produce it any more, but I highly encourage you to watch around and use whatever you already have on hand. You can start with a plain white paper and add colors by your own.

Ten pieces placed together create the whole cake.

Happy Graduation Card (ft. SugarPea Designs)

Happy Graduation #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - For The Graduate stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

Hello and welcome!

I’m super excited to be featured on SugarPea Designs blog!!! Today I came up with a clean and simple graduation card featuring a few lovely dies from For The Graduate SugarCut and Congrats Word SugarCut along with a beautiful Leaf Canopy Stencil.

To start, I prepared all the die cut elements using For The Graduate SugarCut. I die cut the biggest graduation cap from a plain white cardstock and then glued on top the smaller hat, die cut from a black cardstock. I handmade a little tassel using a gold thread, added it to the top part of the hat and finished with an additional cap top popped on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look. A diploma base was die cut from a light gray color. I popped on top a white die cut center and finished with the metallic gold details. The last die cut element was Congrats Word. I glued together two layers die cut from a white cardstock and added a gold metallic layer on top, creating this way a nice thick element that holds the shape.

Happy Graduation #handmade card by Tatiana Trafimovich #tatianacraftandart - For The Graduate stamp set by SugarPea Designs #sugarpeadesigns

I decided to add some color to the background through Leaf Canopy Stencil using Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks with foam sponges. I added a few water droplets to the pattern along with some white and gold splashes and let everything air dry. Meanwhile I heat embossed “Happy Graduation” sentiment using VersaMark ink and a fine gold embossing powder and repeatedly stamped the laurel leaves with a black ink towards the right side of an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″) white card base. Finally I assembled all the elements together with a bit of dimension and finished with a few clear sparkling sequins.
